Mobile theme ads / widget blocks

    I apologize if this has been asked before. I searched and couldn’t find anything. I recently installed Graphene Mobile alongside my site that’s been using the main Graphene theme for years. Overall, I’ve got it looking mostly how I want, with a few small issues.

    1) I have Google Adsense ads, and the inline article ones do appear where they should. Unfortunately, they stick out beyond the width of the mobile formatted page. The other images on the page scale proportionately to the device width, but the ads to not. How can I get them to fit normally. These aren’t super wide ads (460px).

    2) In addition to the formatting, I am also an affiliate partner with a store, and they use sort of ad widgets to refer to the specific product that I speak about (I do camera reviews, so at the end, I put a link for anyone to potentially purchase the reviewed item if they desire). The base image loads, but none of the dynamic information is brought along with it on mobile. Any ideas?

    3) Is there a way to add other widget blocks to the main pages…things that appear on the sidebar in the main theme? I don’t seem to find options for those items.

    Thanks!

    You’ll need to change your ad code to one that is compatible with both desktop and mobile.

    Please provide a link to your site so that we can take a look.

    Yes. There are built-in widget areas for Graphene Mobile (go to WP Admin > Appearance > Widgets). You can also use the Action Hook Widget Areas feature in Graphene Mobile to very easily create more widget areas for use in Graphene Mobile.

    Thanks for the reply. I had managed to figure out the first two before your reply. I’m now using AdSense’s dynamic size for my in-line ads, and it’s working great. My widget issue is also related to absolute size. It works fine in landscape with the current widget, but I found using a smaller one works well with mobile as well, so I’ll just need to go back and modify some of the existing widget links.

    Thanks very much for the help on the widget areas. Everything seems to be working well now. Great theme!
